Yucatán offers many sites to explore, such as beaches, cenotes, magical towns, and archaeological zones that never fail to amaze visitors. However, one aspect that is often overlooked is the caves. If you are a lover of extreme adventures, this is perfect for you.
Caves have a similar formation to cenotes but occur in places where the water table is very deep, resulting in dry chambers formed by filtrations and collapses.
Undoubtedly, visiting these caves is an unforgettable and almost obligatory experience when visiting the state, as they offer wonderful underground landscapes.
We bring you a list of the five most impressive caves in Yucatán, although there are around 150 discovered caves and many more to be explored.
- Wear comfortable clothing.
- Use sneakers; it is impossible to go barefoot or wear sandals as the surfaces are slippery.
